“A nice mix of wooded and open rolling trail. Technical stunts on a few areas with optional bypasses.”— Anne Grofvert

Seasonally trails are closed during XC ski season.
Check the MMMBA Facebook page for open/closed status.
The MTB Trail is a series of named segments linked together, and directional signage information can be found on inconspicuous small brown wood squares with green arrows on them. Try to follow the main trail, as the directions matter on some features!
In general, this is a nice fun trail system aimed at making use out of limited terrain within the overall area. Optional elevated stunts will be found within the loop, with the majority of them not too far from the Riverbend parking lot. There are bypass options for all of these.
A numbered signage system is in the works which will help riders find their way around better. Hopefully, the first phase of this will be in place prior to the end of the 2016 riding season.
During summer months the MMMBA chapter hosts weekly group rides. The ones at Burchfield can be a great way to learn the trail plus meet other riders.
Two other trails are nearby, Bennett Park in Charlotte and Anderson Park on Old Lansing Road (currently named Blue Loop Green Loop and Red Loop and can be located that way here on MTBProject).
